About 20 minutes walk along the riverwalk into town, and opposite a great park for kids - so great location for all. The rooms are spacious, clean and warm with a kitchenette, decent shower and 2 beds. We stayed in winter so didn't use the pool or the garden area but it looked great for a warm, sunny day. Very...

An excellent value for money motel in Whanganui. The room that we are offered by Ryan had all the facilities that you could want when travelling. The room was large with a full lounge suite, all was very clean and the wood bed excellent and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and would also recommend it to everyone... More

We had a very comfortable and restful stay here. It was clean and very convenient. Our host, Brian, was friendly and welcoming to the greatest extent. I certainly would stay here again and also liked visiting the town.

Astral was a pretty basic motel that would suit if you weren't going to spend a lot of time there, it has a old feeling but good for what we needed. The people that run this were lovely and it was just a basic nice motel

We were returning from Wellington where we had been overwhelmed by the Gallipoli exhibition, and decided to take a break here at the Astral motel in Wanganui. Set alongside the river some mile or so out of town, it provided spacious accommodation at a reasonable price. Our family room , the only one availble on our dates had two very... More

Chose this hotel because of its proximity to Whanganui Girl's College and was pleasantly surprised at what it had to offer. The studio apartment was clean, beds very comfortable, free wifi and the staff very helpful . It is a small establishment and the great thing is the owner and his wife runs the place. Taking that extra mile to... More
